I am sure all of you WoW classic players, at least on the horde side, have experienced extremely long queue times for AVs.
Back in the day, you could queue up for all 3 and get a popup while in one Battleground, to join another.
This led to some groups being short handed.
But I think that Alterac Valley should be the exception here. The queue times are very long and if you play the other battlegrounds while waiting, your Alterac Valley queue is placed on hold. Time only ticks down when you are outside of a battleground instance.
Back in original WoW, you would get popups to join other battlegrounds because the timers on the queue and your ability to join them did not stop as the do today.
Please fix blizzard, and allow players to join Alterac Valley with priority over the others. You can keep the paused queues for the other 2 BGs but let AV go please!
